Underwood prefers to eat more natural foods, and one vegetarian option for her pre-show lunches.

“Lunches are maybe some ‘tu-no,’ not tuna because I don’t eat [meat],” she explained. “I always eat [some] lupini beans. Hummus and veggies are always on the menu.”

The former American IdolWinner finishes her day with two scrambled egg and half an avocado for dinner. “It gets me through the show without feeling like I ate lots of food,” Underwood continued.

The mother of two who shares sons Isaiah (7 years old) and Jacob (3 years old) with her husband Mike Fisher, noted that her show days are “very regimented” and that’s the way she likes it.

“Every show day right before we go on, we’ll kind of hangout, me and the band we just laugh. I am blessed with such a great band. … Everybody’s funny,” she added. “We hang out. We say a prayer and we go out and do our thing.”
